WHITTIER, Calif. - The Poet Student-Athlete Leadership Academy (PSALA) put on a great event this past weekend, inviting all the new freshman and transfer athletes to come out to our brand new football stadium and take part in The Amazing Race!
This year's large freshman class brought many new faces to our Poet athletics family. The new athletes were separated into teams of ten and given challenges they were to complete around campus related to our Athletic department! The challenges ranged from breaking a frozen t-shirt apart using their bare hands to a paper airplane toss that proved difficult for many of the teams.
The winners of the Amazing Race were rewarded a Whittier Athletics shirt that bragged #WEWON on the back, to show off to their peers. After the events, the athletes were treated to pizza and time to hang out at our very own Lillian Slade Aquatic Center with their new friends and teammates.
The PSALA team really enjoyed putting on the Amazing Race for all the new athletes that are joining our Poet community. We want to wish all athletes good luck in their current seasons and all the seasons to come throughout the year!
